Author Topic: Open Office to pdf conversion  (Read 2994 times)

I've written a document in Open Office Writer (the equivalent to M$ Word), and used the inbuilt drawing programme to produce some diagrams. I want to convert the document to pdf. Using Acrobat Professional, I can produce a pdf with all the text intact, but the diagrams disappear (and the photos are replaced by miniature thumbnails). Anybody know of a solution? Do I need an OpenOffice plugin for Acrobat Professional, or is it something that's not possible?

Thanks Guy- you're a star.

I had opened Acrobat professional and used that to convert it, and all the diagrams were missing etc. I clicked on the 'export as pdf' as you suggested, and it's worked perfectly - many thanks! The document (PV mounting instructions) will be in the Navitron download area shortly.
